Every gardener and homeowner can tell you what they consider to be a weed. Too often, one person’s weed is another creature’s lunch or shelter, while another person’s prized plant might be the next ecological disaster. Discussion will include a brief history of weeds and their impact on ecosystems and our economy. This workshop focuses on ways to identify your weeds and strategies for their management, whether they be friend or foe. Management practices include time-tested approaches and some new techniques we’ve explored here at NCBG, with an emphasis on environmentally responsible gardening. Participants are welcome to bring in their own specimens for identification.
